Careum Auditorium

Careum Auditorium

Your events hub in Zurich’s university district

Whether you are looking to hold a conference, seminar or workshops – with its modern architecture, the Careum Auditorium is the ideal location for any occasion. The Auditorium’s flexible spatial concept means that it can be adapted to suit individual needs.

Spanning a total area of 470 square metres, the Careum Auditorium can accommodate up to 500 people, depending on the seating arrangement. For medium-sized and smaller events, the hall can be split into two halves – Auditorium 1 and 2 – or four smaller rooms – the red, blue, green and purple rooms. Soundproof walls ensure that you can enjoy your event undisturbed without any background noise.

Our Foyer is the perfect place if you are looking to greet your guests in style or share coffee breaks or intimate drinks receptions. It can, however, also be used as an exhibition space for your events.

  • Getting there

    The Careum Auditorium is situated at the heart of Zurich’s university district at Pestalozzistrasse 11. It is just a few metres away from the “Platte” tram stop. Due to the limited number of parking spaces available on site, we recommend that you arrive by public transport.
